Can you feel rotten after a Panic attack?
« on: June 05, 2014, 11:19:06 AM »
I had one the other evening and the experience was unpleasant! chest was tight and so was the breathing, it felt laboured and off yet my speech was solid. I was really, very worried I was going to die last night.

Now today the breathing is steadier but I feel rotten slightly afterwards. Still worried that its going to lead to my untimely demise but hopefully the rotten feeling will pass.

I've done some self help therapy which has worked to a certain extent and I intend to continue with it until I feel a bit more normal.

Please tell me all that Im not going to die from this experience, cause it feels like it most times..though Ive felt like it for the past 3 months coming up 4

Yes, it's residual effects from the panic attack.  I generally feel blah and tired.

MOST anxiety happens at the subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state.  - AnxietyZone member Sixpack

Oh Yes after having a panic attack or even having anxiety you will feel so worn out and just blahhhhhhhh it is because of the chemicals being released in the body so it takes time to totally recover but if they are back to back then it is even harder to feel better because of the chemicals and then the stress on the body and mind.

Our body tenses up also clear from the head to the toes so learning to relax is another key thing to do.

It is so draining dealing with it all BUT there is always better days coming so hang in there and know you are going to be okay and you wont die from a panic attack or the body symptoms.
I would have been dead a million times by now but I didn't happen.

Take care of yourself and if self help doesn't work then maybe seeing a therapist would.

Yes. I get so worn out from anxiety and anxiety attacks. It's cause our minds think we have just ran from a big danger like a bear or something. I hate when I'm so tired from one. Sometimes it has caused me to feel detached and I hate that!!!!!
